2 x Postdoctoral positions available in Synaptic Physiology - Jupiter, Florida

Two NIH funded positions are available to investigate fundamental questions in neuroscience using the Drosophila genetic model system. One postdoctoral fellow will investigate the means by which mitochondria support neurotransmission and contribute to synaptic plasticity, while the other postdoctoral fellow will investigate the influence of synaptic pH homeostasis on neurotransmission and synaptic plasticity.

The ideal candidate has recently obtained a PhD in neuroscience, physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology or biophysics. They will be proficient in one or two of the following techniques, with the opportunity to build proficiency in the other(s): fluorescence microscopy, electrophysiology, molecular biology and electron microscopy.

Our laboratory is well equipped and highly interactive. It is part of the Jupiter Life Sciences Initiative located in Jupiter on the John D. MacArthur campus of Florida Atlantic University adjacent to the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and The Scripps Research Institute.
